The aim: to study pregnancy associated plasma protein A as a potential marker of myocardial necrosis with acute coronary syndrome. Material and methods. The rates of PPPP-A and insulin-like growth factor 1 were determined in 24 patients with acute myocardial infarction, in 18 patients with unstable angina and in the control group as well. Results. The rates of PPPP-A and ILGF-1 are accurately higher in the groups with acute coronary pathology in comparison to the patients with no ischemia. Conclusions. PPPP-A proves to be a marker of ischemia and/ or injury and could be used as a diagnostic predictor of an unstable atherosclerotic plaque in acute coronary development.
